mccain said the other day this is the first time in 51 years that the senate hasn't passed a defense authorization bill. the problem right now, i don't think we will convince harry reid to change -- >> but the beauty and election you don't have to convince. you just have to replace. that's why we made a republican majority. >> given the people have in congress right now i would rather see gridlock than then getting to the kind of crazy ideas putting us more in debt just like raising the debt ceiling. you know it's coming again. you know congressman flake is going to vote for. maybe this time, maybe i stand corrected, it appears only. he votes for raising the debt ceiling when there's republican president. a rather than have these people and their content to march is done the same road we been marching down, we are better off with gridlock. we need to change hearts and minds. >> we gotcha. i want to know your opinion on the filibuster. is it being abused? should be done away with? it is not in the constitution. >> it absolutely is being abused spent do you think you think is probably?
